About Flush Away Poverty

What is Flush Away Poverty?

Flush Away Poverty is a fundraiser for HumanKind Ministries’ programs and services and a campaign for awareness of the 61,000 people living in poverty in Wichita and countless more experiencing homelessness.  It gives Wichitans a unique opportunity to surprise and delight friends, family, and neighbors, while raising funds and awareness of the basic needs of Wichita’s most vulnerable residents, by sending a brightly painted toilet to the home of whomever they wish.  

Why a Toilet?

People living in poverty or homelessness often lack easy access to basic needs including food, water, shelter, appropriate clothing, medical care, and sanitation. The toilet is a symbol of these basic needs that so many of us take for granted. 

What Does My Money Support?

All proceeds will support HumanKind’s programs and services, which include homeless shelters, low-income apartment complexes, street outreach, and other basic needs programs. Funds will also go toward installing new bathroom facilities at our Men’s Emergency Winter Shelter which now serves up to 140 people every night. Learn more about our work here.
